UPDATE: June 8 — The CDC reported Friday that 172 children had died from the flu, making this the deadliest seasonal flu season on record.

PREVIOUSLY:

Mia Lobo couldn’t wait for mid-May when she would graduate from preschool and dance in her first recital. Her family had talked about the big milestones for weeks.

The outgoing 5-year-old from a Chicago suburb was a little nervous about the performance, but her father, Dominic Lobo, said he wasn’t worried.

After all, she was one of those kids who loved the limelight, a “little ball of fire.” Mia often held court with her friends and family, playing dress up and stealing her 17-year-old sister’s makeup.
